First cycle for us. I had Mirena removed in November and then tracked my cycles with temping and OpK for 6 months so i knew exactly when I ovulated.

runnergirl4204 :  I still do not have a “take home baby” but charted for 6ish months prior to TTC. We got pregnant on cycle #6, which ended in an early MC. Again during IUI #3 (cycle #16). I’m currently on cycle #29 (my cycles are short when unmedicated, but have been “average” during all IUI and IVF retrievals).

We started charting as part of marrimage prep class before we were married. 

It took 1 cycle. But it was actually one of those not trying/not avoiding. I thought it was count back 2 months, add 7 days so I thought my due date would be May. We BD 4 days before ovulation and it took; did not anticipate that! Oops…due date is April (I teach at a college). 

I’m 34 years old and didn’t think I’d get pregnant that quick. Bc like you OP my cycle is regular but so many people I know have problems.

runnergirl4204 :  one for us too, I used opks and I am assuming I ovulated after my 2 smiley face days. We BDed whenever we felt like it/could and happened to be around that time. 🙂 

Don’t stress yet, no point worrying about something that might not even be a problem! Enjoy yourself and try relax xx

runnergirl4204 :  ignore people who tell you to “just relax” – they suck. I have relaxed, followed my cycles, and nearly 2 years and one failed IUI later we are starting IVF. My ability to relax won’t fix my husband’s sperm issues.

runnergirl4204 :  Pregnant on the second month, but I miscarried. Pregnant that cycle, technically our third month trying, but four from when we started.

runnergirl4204 :  One of the main reasons I left public accounting was because I was tired of scheduling my life around busy season! This is our first cycle officially trying. I got off BC in February but still used condoms until last cycle. I figured that would be our trial run plus it would be fun to conceive while vacationing in Italy. Well AF arrived yesterday so I’m officially CD2. I’d really like a May baby because summers are unbearable in the south so I’m really hoping 1 cycle does this trick!
